    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in London, England

    Very flexible working patterns, with the opportunity to work from home a couple of days a week. The company is putting a lot of emphasis on modern ways of working and there is support from the top for this, which means work/life balance is strong. It also very common for people to have secondments in other teams, to help them grow and develop.
